Moreparticularly, embodiments of the invention involve, for example, consumer electronics, personal computers, control systems, and professional assistance systems.BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTIONThe prior art is rich in various systems and methods for data analysis, as well as various systems and methods relating to useful endeavors. In general, most existing systems and methods provide concrete functions, which have a defined responseto a defined stimulus. Such systems, while embodying the "wisdom" of the designer, have a particular shortcoming in that their capabilities are static.Intelligent or learning systems are also known. These systems are limited by the particular paradigm employed, and rarely are the learning algorithms general. In fact, while the generic theory and systems which learn are well known, theapplication of such systems to particular problems requires both a detailed description of the problem, as well as knowledge of the input and output spaces. Even once these factors are known, a substantial tuning effort may be necessary to enableacceptable operation.Therefore, the present invention builds upon the prior art, which defines various problems to be addressed, intelligent systems and methods, tuning paradigms and user interfaces. Therefore, as set forth below, and in the attached appendix ofreferences (including abstr
